Healthy skin not perfect skin

Terra and Self was created to transcend current beauty standards with intentional self-care products that make you feel good in your own skin. We’re here to remind you that beauty products should spark joy and confidence, and that “flaws” don’t exist to be fixed.  

We formulate our products with high quality natural ingredients to keep your skin happy and healthy. We believe the act of self-care should be fun, relaxing, and deeply personal. And we do it all while protecting the environment and our communities with mindful sustainability practices and packaging.

Meet the Founder

Growing up as a plus size black woman, I feel like I was reminded again and again that I wasn’t what was considered beautiful. I thought that if only I were the perfect size or had the perfect skin that I would be enough. Eventually though, my mindset evolved. I re-examined beauty standards and decided I would not be found wanting. I came to accept myself as I was, and as I am, now. In this moment. 

I learned that two things can be true at once: I can hold space to improve and grow, and who I am now is beautiful and worthy. Now. Not when something about me changes. I ask that you try leaning in to giving yourself the same grace. 

I created Terra and Self not to be a brand that “makes” you beautiful, but to be a brand that sees your beauty now, and celebrates who you are, uniquely and naturally, right now.
